Welcome! We are the Bushwhacker Climbing Club


The Bushwhacker Climbing Club is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in the greater Seattle area created by Pacific Northwest area climbers. We are a fun, friendly Pacific Northwest climbing club who strive to foster and educate a community that enjoys wilderness adventures. We offer a variety of courses, clinics, club outings, and social events throughout the year. 

Milkshake Madness 23 was great fun at the Wallingford Clubhouse! Big thanks to the Morenos for hosting, the presenters, and the milkshake drinkers!
